The drug addict – Femi Fani-Kayode accused President Jonathan of hating Yoruba’s •Says: Let’s divide Nigeria instead of Ijaw dominating Yoruba.


 

Femi Fani-Kayode-003All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode, this evening accused President Goodluck Jonathan of hating his (Fani-Kayode’s) Yoruba ethnic group.

The one-time Minister of Aviation also accused Jonathan’s Ijaw ethnic group of dominating the Yoruba. Though he did not provide evidence to back up his allegations, Chief Fani-Kayode in a Facebook update about an hour ago advocated the dissolution of Nigeria as a country instead of the Yoruba to continue under the domination of the Ijaw or any other ethnic group. Below is his unedited post on his Facebook page:

President Goodluck Jonathan and those within his inner circle simply hate the yoruba. And we the yoruba did not resist, fight and defeat the hegemony of other nationalities in the last 100 years just for it to be replaced with Ijaw domination.

I have said it before and I will say it again, if we cannot have a level playing field for all tribes, all religions and all nationalities in Nigeria and if we cannot all be treated as equals then let Nigeria cease to exist.

 

If you want Nigeria to continue to remain as one country into the distant future there must be no more ”masters” and no more ”servants”.

If we cannot be treated as equals we the yoruba will forcefully resist the tyranny of our oppressors and we will scuttle and sabotage this man-made geographical expression called Nigeria until it ceases to exist.

And if, in the misguided and confused minds of some, that makes us tribalists or ethnic supremacists so be it.

We cannot be held back from our natural pace of development anymore. We cannot allow the natural excellence of the yoruba to be sacrificed on the alter of Nigeria.

We cannot allow the gains and massive contributions of our forefathers and our heroes past to be treated with contempt and ridicule or to be squandered and to be in vain.

Nigeria is 100 years old this year. It is time for us to decide whether we want to stay together for another 100 years or whether we want to go our separate ways within the next five years.

It is time for us to decide whether we want to be the captain of our ship and the master of our soul or the spineless and perpetual serfs of those that come from other climes.

Commotion as Gani Adams inaugurates OPC Itsekiri chapter.


Gani-Adams

There was tension and drama in Warri, Delta State yesterday as the National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples’ Congress (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams, inaugurated a Delta State chapter of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in Itsekiri community.

What would have been a bloody confrontation between angry Itsekiri youths and security operatives was averted by the swift intervention of the leadership of the Itsekiri Leaders of Thought, Itsekiri National Youth Council (INYC) and members of the OPC.

Adams, who led 2,000 OPC leaders, including Alhaji Oyinlola Awe, Lateef Oladimejo and Mudashiru Aderibigbe, National Admin Secretary, Financial Secretary and Treasurer; INYC President, David Tonwe and others, were stopped from the venue of the ceremony.

The ceremony, scheduled for 11am at the Atuwatse II Model Primary School, Esisi Road in the Oil City, was later moved to a private residence when policemen invaded the scene and barricaded the entrance to the premises.

Mr. Gbubemi Abigor, INYC spokesman, lamented the misinformation spread about the event.

“Our idea is to have contact with our brothers from the Southwest (OPC) and ensure that we can relate socially, economically, politically, etc.

“Funny enough, this very good and noble intention was marred by negative speculations. We deem it necessary that we should avoid anything that can dent this noble relationship we are trying to create,” Abigor, who spoke on behalf of INYC President, David Tonwe, said.

Speaking in the same vein, Otunba Adams, who led a large contingent of about 80 of OPC National Coordinating Council members to Warri, said: “We are not in Itsekiri (Warri) to cause problem and I do not see anything bad in coming to Delta State.”

The OPC leader regretted that respected Itsekiri leaders would spread false information about an ordinary meeting between two closely related ethnic groups, who share ancestral linkage.

He said the congress was not a fully militant group as it was portrayed, stressing that the group has played its part, like other ethnic bodies, in restoring pride of place to the Yoruba nation.

He hailed the Itsekiri Leaders of Thought for ensuring that OPC Delta State (Itsekiri chapter) was inaugurated and the INYC for hosting the OPC National Coordinating Council (NCC) Meeting without the predicted breakdown of law and order.

“With what we have done, we have shown a great deal of maturity. We played down the issue of confrontation.

“Our members in this community are more than 2,000. If we (had) marched them to the field, there would have been chaos. I have to thank the leadership and organisation skill of the Itsekiri for the level of understanding,” he added.

Earlier, Pa Ayomike, who received the OPC and INYC teams in his home, slammed the state government for preventing attendees from enjoying the freedom of association as provided by the constitution, stressing that it has become a recurring incident for the government to violate the constitution.

However, he commended Otunba Adams and the leadership of the Itsekiri National Youth Council, led by Tonwe, for achieving the goal of the day despite the intimidation and harassment by security operatives.

Pa Ayomike, a reputable historian, later presented one of his books, titled: ‘Warri: A Focus on The Itsekiri’, to commemorate the historical visit.

The inauguration of Comrade Hakeem Agboola as the OPC Delta chapter coordinator was witnessed by Mr. Amorighoye Mene, Mr. Edward Ekpoko, Chief F.A. Rewane, Prof. Tony Afejuku, Mr. David Iwere and Dr. Lucky Akaruese

Oduagate, Jonathan Presidency And The Culture Of Corruption By Peter Claver Oparah.


By Peter Claver Oparah

Nothing best demonstrates the decrepit condition of the Nigerian state at present than the handling of the lurid details of what has come to be known as Oduagate today. To the extent that most Nigerians have come to see the dithering of the Jonathan government in adopting a firm position on the issue as a predictable effort to add the malfeasance that is spewing from the scandal to the rich list of official scandals that have been festering in the life of this regime, Nigerians believe that nothing substantive will be done by the regime to ensure that the wellhead of corruption, which thrives so luxuriantly in this regime is capped. It is unfortunate that gradually, the country is being led to believe that corruption and graft are integral parts of the directive principle of state police and no previous regime in Nigeria has made this retrogressive policy statement more forcefully than has the Jonathan regime.

It may be true, as being put forth by perverted ethnic mandarins, that what presently passes off as Oduagate is becoming an integral part of statecraft in Nigeria. It may be true that corruption has become an ethnic commodity in Nigeria; to be hoisted by respective ethnic divisions to ferry their guilty compatriots from indictment. However, it speaks so low of the present regime that corruption and graft have assumed such life where all it takes to get a culprit exonerated from his or her obvious crimes is to wave a tattered and shameful ethnic bandana. And this has been because room has been created for unpardonable lax in the presumed fight against corruption, which has been a convenient mantra successive regimes have clung to for the purpose of purchasing credibility.

But in a clear instance like the Oduagate where the culprit was caught with her hands fully dipped in the cookie jar, a president mindful of his name and the legacies he leaves behind would not have second-guessed before he does the needful, which is offloading such putrid garbage. A president that attaches even the flimsiest meaning to integrity needs not be prodded to shake off such embarrassing tag the continued tolerance of Stella Odua is bringing to the regime. A president mindful of his placing in the pages of history needs not have waited till Oduagate mutates into a shameful exchange of ethnic brickbats by ethnic minions who predicate their commission on how they are recruited to grow the burgeoning corruption complex. Furthermore, a president careful of the signals he sends forth would not have allowed his party to attempt to muddle the issue on clear partisan coloration. Such president would have been careful to send the signal that his government is interwoven to corruption, as his deliberate dithering on the issue and on such similar issues in the past, portend.

But Nigerians may be dreaming if they expect such actions that speak of an ethical high-ground from a Jonathan government. Again and again, this government continues to demonstrate that it cares no hoot being bandied as corrupt. It has been a free reign of scandalous conduct and means which rebuke decent conduct in governance. Nigerians recall the sordid malfeasance that many believe, is grown in the oil sector, the highlight of which was that in one fell swoop, the government carried out a N2.3trilion heist where state resources were freely shared amongst choice lackeys, cronies and subalterns in the name of fuel subsidy. Even as the government had tongue-in-cheek, admitted such hefty scandal, it had not brought any of the known culprits who are its enablers, supporters and fronts, to justice. It had traversed curious ways to ensure these economic rapists remain free from harm’s way and openly sabotaged the report of the Nuhu Ribadu panel that exposed large-scale officially-induced graft in the oil sector. Today, the Nigerian oil sector remains a cesspool of corruption and its case has been worsened by a frightening large-scale oil theft which most Nigerians consider as an insider-deal and which bleeds the country of an estimated N10 billion each week!

As it is in the oil sector, so it is in the energy sector which had remained terminally cancerous even with the billions of dollars poured into it. At the end of the day, Nigerians are being arm twisted into paying higher tariffs for nonexistent light. Even the much saluted privatization of the sector is not emitting any early signals of revival. These are two instances of the way the government has allowed the scourge of corruption to inflict deep cancerous gashes on the country and its citizens. It is so pervasive that every sector reels from the scourge and it has become such an epidemic because the government promotes a permissive culture that allows corruption to permeate and mutate in various forms and guises. It has become so bad that it has completely demolished what remains of the national moral sinew. In the sequel, such bodies like the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, which hitherto made pretensions to fight corruption, have been buried in unmarked graves. Cronyism, influence peddling and impunity which grow corruption and financial indiscipline are allowed free rein and state resources are plundered with daring audacity.

A fat, obtuse and wasteful government ensures that several fonts of corruption are unleashed on the resources that would have bettered the lots of perpetually suffering Nigeria whose lives continue to trudge on the thorny paths of a brutish, short and nasty life. In the sequel, an insignificant few, with access to the operatives of government corner the common till and flags not in plundering such national patrimony to the detriment of the masses. It is for this reason that Nigeria is today a study in contrasts where government trumpets a growing economy but where the citizenry is experiencing the worst form of privation ever. It is for this reason that Nigeria has earned more oil revenue in the last fourteen years that it earned in the rest of its 39 years independent history yet poverty is rifer than at any period of our history. It is ironic that these free loaders succeed in enlisting the politics of poverty which undergirds the conduct of the present epoch to recruit their victims to bring ethnicity into cases of corruption against them. It is a greater tragedy that a presidency that should wield the hammer in such dastardly instances and weigh in the moral cudgel willingly plays up the game and takes deft measures to inter such brazen cases of corruption each time they arise.

The absence of a leading figure abhorrent and intolerant of corruption has unleashed a wild gusto of free loading amongst public office holders who always trust on the unfailing support of the president to rally to their sides when they are caught in the act. Because the present government is ethically rusty, morally compromised and stunted in credibility, it had not failed to leverage its cover to any of its officials caught plundering public funds. At best, it tries to politicize such lurid cases and wait till our historical national amnesia quells such scandal and consigns them to our narrow subconscious.

Nigeria needs instant redemption, anchored on the need to re-discover our moral compass, reawaken our ethical underpinning, and resurrect our sense of shame and hewing for ourselves a leadership that has the guts and enough personal distaste for corruption. The citizenry need to rediscover their lost souls to stand and mobilize enough shame to confront corruption and its perpetrators, regardless of their ethnic origins. This is the only way to save the country and its citizens from possible perdition where it is irrevocably heading for at present.

Our fears on national confab – Northern CAN.


oritsejafor-pastor

Northern States chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has expressed some fears about the national dialogue, saying that the conference would end in vain if it failed to address minority issue in the country.

The Executive Secretary of Northern CAN, Professor Daniel Babayi told Saturday Sun in an interview that there was a minority commission put in place during the British rule where ethnic minorities had their problems, particularly conflicts, addressed up to the time the colonial masters left the Nigerian shores.

Babayi regretted that successive governments jettisoned the commission, saying that it was now an opportunity for Nigerians to revisit the issue and revive the commission at the national conference.

 

The Professor of Theology noted that the various conflicts in different parts of the country, particularly in the North was as a result of absence of the commission, adding that governments at all levels are duty bound to provide good governance to the people.

He said aside the CAN’s agitation for a minority commission, it would also take a position on some other national issues and present to the committee on the national conference when it begins sitting.

His words, “You see, the British, in their own wisdom when they were withdrawing from the country ensured that a minority commission was put in place to address the issue of minority, especially in the North, but of course, now we have completely jettisoned that idea, nobody is even talking about the issue of minority commission any more.

“We have rubbished it, and for doing so you will see that we will continue to overlook the need of minority, and because of that we will continue to have conflict because the minority commission was put in place to help reduce areas of conflict. Now that we have removed it, we have compounded our own conflict situation.

“To start with, there are ethnic groups who think that they are minority, in fact they are minority. Apart from the ethnic groups, women are in a minority in a sense, children are in a minority in a sense, you can go on and begin to categorize various minority groups. So every time we talk about minority commission, we only think of ethnic groups, but the commission that addresses minority issues looks far beyond ethnic enclaves because there are other social groupings too that can be regarded as minority.

“We just want to call on the federal government and the state governments to revisit the issue of minority commission at the federal and state levels.

Such commission is very needed now in order to reduce the areas of conflict. Remember that we cannot set out to establish a utopia society, but we can allow the existence of such minority commission to address issues and reduce areas of conflict.

“As far as we are concerned in Northern CAN, we don’t believe that there is any aspect of governance in Nigeria that should be excluded from this national conference. So minority commission is one issue that should be discussed there, and we are calling on the committee in charge to revisit the issue of the commission.

“We are waiting for the national conference committee to come up with a modality, and when they come up with that modality, we are always ever ready to contribute, and we have set up a dialogue sub-committee to work on some of these issues and come up with a position paper for Northern CAN.

2015:Power shift to North not negotiable—Northern leaders.


Northern-elders-03

Northern Elders are not prepared to back down on the North’s demand for the presidency in 2015,spokesman for the group, Professor Ango Abdullahi has said.

“There is no going back on the presidency returning to the North in 2015, and that has remained our position,” he told The Nation on the outcome of the last weekend meeting of the Northern Elders Forum.

Professor Abdullahi accused the President of playing politics with the proposed national conference.

“As far as we are concerned, all this talk about national conference is political and geared towards 2015. It is also becoming clear that the only card on the table of Mr. President is ethnicity or religion. We are waiting to see how this will work in his favour,” he said.

But he explained that the North is not in any way against the conference.

His words: “The Northern Elders’ Forum met last weekend and we generally agreed with the direction of the North on the National Conference. And we said why not? The point we tried to make is what kind of conference?

“This is because we have had all sorts of conferences in the past from 1914 to date. All the reports of these conferences are there in the Government House. The Northern Elders’ Forum wondered what kind of conversation, dialogue, or conference that would be different from the ones we have had before.

“We agreed that the only thing that will make the proposed conference significantly different is when it is sovereign. What needs to be done is to suspend the current 1999 Constitution by the National Assembly to pave the way for a peoples’ conference. The National Assembly should vacate itself to enable the sovereign conference to take place.

“I am particularly surprised that those who have always wanted a sovereign conference are now backing out and for whatever reason, I cannot say. While the Northern Elders’ Forum may be at home with the proposed conference, as we have always maintained that we are ready for any kind of conference, I still maintain that we either have a sovereign conference or nothing else. Without that, we had better manage the system as it is. Otherwise, the proposed conference will be a mere talk shop and a jamboree.”

Once Again On The National Conference: A National Conference For The People And By The People? By Jaye Gaskia.


By Jaye Gaskia

It is important in order to avoid misrepresentation, to once again express and canvass ones views on the ongoing National dialogue or national conference process.

Some preliminary issues of principle are necessary to begin with:

Sovereignty belongs to the people, and not to any of the institutions of governance or state to which they might have under certain circumstances delegated exercise of that sovereignty!

In this respect therefore sovereignty belongs to Nigerian citizens, and not to the National Assembly [NASS], the Presidency, or the Judiciary!
In the second instance, if sovereignty belongs to the people, then the outcome of any structured process of consultation or dialogue on issues that will fundamentally affect the lives of citizens and the delivery of governance must of necessity be subjected to the people for final ratification in a referendum! The final decision in such a process, and on such matters belong to the people, not to their delegated representatives!

Thirdly, there is the overarching and all embracing issue of the nature of the conference, and an agenda for such a structured dialogue of fundamental consequence for the lives and destinies of a people.

Let us break this down a bit. On the structure of the conference, we are very clear that Nigeria as it presently exists; as it existed before colonial conquest and the subsequent 1914 amalgamation; is not a simple motley collection of cohabiting ethnic groups or nationalities! Let us be very clear about this, not once in our history was Nigeria, nor any of the constituent ethnic, cultural and language groups, a simple political entity of those distinct ethnic groups. Even in the pre-colonial period, kingdoms and polities developed and evolved as a result of economic interaction, and was of conquests, usual fought around access to resources. The Yorubas for example existed as distinct polities, which may be subjugated to larger polities, but which were nevertheless in constant competition with their neighbours, near and distant. The same was true of the Hausas, of the Igbos, of the Ogonis, and of the Ijaws for that matter! In fact I argue that before the dynamics of colonialisation and the struggle for independence took over, there was no one single Yoruba Ethnic National identity; nor were their any such for the Hausas or the Igbos. And until the emergence of MOSOP in the late 1980s, or of the Ijaw Youth Council [IYC] of the 1990s; the idea of single ethnic national Ogoni or Ijaw identity was strange, an exception, rather than the norm.

The point being made is that the ethnic identity, like every other identity is a socially constructed identity, and can also socially evolve, and be deconstructed.  Certainly the most significant and disproportionate beneficiaries of the construction and stagnation of ethnic identity; those that have and continue to benefit the most from such ethnic identity constructions; are the elites of the emergent ethnic identity under construction; the political jobbers and ethnic identity entrepreneurs who become millionaires and billionaires as a result of the guaranteed access to state treasury [and thus guaranteed access to treasury looting]that new administrative configurations constructed on the basis of ethnic identities enable them to have; Hence the way that they continue to agitate for re-definition of the structural basis of administration and resource allocation.

If it is therefore true that as a polity, throughout our entire history and evolution, we have not been reducible to the simple arithmetic sum and collection of ethnic groups; then it is important, instructive, in fact decisive that we insist that any serious national dialogue process or conference cannot be reduced to a mere conference of ethnicities, or a mere national dialogue among ethnic groups.

This is a very important point and demand for citizens to make. A conference, the outcomes of which, citizens shall express their agreement or disagreement; a conference around which the citizens are expected to exercise their sovereignty over its outcome, cannot be an ethnic conference; because the people will not be voting in or as ethnic blocs!

And this point above leads us to a citizens based, and peoples’ needs focused agenda for the conference.

If we must repeat ourselves; the pressing issues affecting ordinary citizens, are national socio-economic and socio-political issues, not ethnic issues.
Poverty is rife across the country, regardless of ethnicity. 70% of us, that is 112 million citizens are living in poverty, this is a sixth of the total population of Africa!

18 million households across the country regardless of ethnicity or geo-political zone location are homeless: this is according to the Housing deficit figures given by the Federal Government itself! These 18 million housing deficits for 18 million households translates into actually 90 million Nigerians [18 million households x 5 person per household] that are either homeless or live in inhuman habitation! Now these 18 million is more than the population of the whole of Senegal and Gambia put together; while the 90 million housing poor is more than the population of either Egypt or Ethiopia!

Basic infrastructures are lacking, or dilapidated; roads are in terrible conditions and have become death traps; public healthcare and public education are in ruins; while private healthcare and education are priced out of the reach of the 70% [112 million] who live in poverty! Worldwide 57 million children of school going age are out of school; Nigerian children are 11 million of this 57 million!

Unemployment has become a grievous issue of concern; it grew from 8% in 1999 to 23.9% in 2012 for the general population; while among youths it is almost 50%, which is one in two youth of working age is unemployed and unemployable.

Yet in the midst of this grinding poverty, we have stupendous wealth, and crass ostentatious display of ill-gotten [stolen and looted] wealth.

The Richest African is a Nigerian, who is also the world’s 25th richest man, with a personal fortune almost equal to the entire external savings of the country! The richest black woman is also a Nigerian, with a personal fortune almost 50% of the country’s external debt portfolio! And of the 40 Richest Africans 15 are Nigerians!  Our legislators are not only among the highest paid in the world; they also have earnings 116 times the national per capital income of citizens! No wonder the gap between the rich and the poor is one of the highest the world over.

Through a combination of state patronage and treasury looting, including such other avenues as state protected criminal enterprise, as with oil theft and subsidy theft; we have arrived at a situation in which whereas, the top 10% of wealthiest Nigerians own and control 41% of national wealth; the bottom 20% own only a mere 4% of National wealth!

It is such inequality that have produced the massive poverty and impoverisation of the majority of the citizens; and that has led to the non availability and inaccessibility of basic services and basic social infrastructures; it is why we are one the top countries with the highest costs of doing business and with the lowest Business Confidence Index Globally, at barely 25% and standing 17th lowest BCI rate of more than 100 countries.

It is for all of the above reasons that we insist that the agenda for the conference is socio-economic and socio-political rather than ethnic; and it is for this reasons that we insist that representation must be on the basis of socio-economic forces, and not ethnic forces; and that it is this socio-economic forces who are represented at the conference, and who should also exercise their sovereignty on the outcomes and processes of the conference.

It is important that significant constitutional change will be, not just one that clearly resolves the nature and structure of the fiscal relationship of our federation; not only one that resolves the nature of the federation, whether it is two tier or a three tier federation; but one where the entire corpus of human rights, not just civil and political rights, but also socio- economic and cultural rights are guaranteed and made justifiable!

When they are made justifiable, we can institutionalize processes that ensure that on a yearly basis, governments at all levels give an account of what they are doing to fulfill these rights provisions; it is only then that annual state of the nation or stewardship addresses will make meaningful sense; and it is only then that we can ensure that political parties are established and operate on the basis of fulfilling the interests of the citizens when they get into power.

It is only if as citizens we struggle to ensure that a National Conference is called along these lines, structured in this way, with its outcome subject to a popular referendum, that we can speak of a ‘National Conference of the people, by the people, and for the people’.

Without our active struggle, in making and enforcing these demands, what we are going to be saddled with will be at best just another distractive, time wasting and money gulping process; or at worst, a chaotic and cacophonous debate that will inexorably precipitate violent crises.

It is our destiny that is at stake, let us intervene decisively and collectively to stamp our interests on the process and the outcome of the conference. If we do so, we shall be taking a definitive step to Take Back Nigeria, and liberate our country from the gluttonous death grip of these Vagabonds In Power!

SHOCKER! Obamacare Will Segregate Doctors And Patients According To Race And Skin Color.


Part of the Progressive “community organizer” social justice manifesto is widespread division. It is Obama’s aim to divide by wealth, class, backgrounds, and as this article shows, to use Obamacare to segregate by race. Obama has come to seek and destroy not only the American way of life, but America itself.

Just as God raised up the wicked King Saul to judge the Jews in the Old Testament, Barack Obama is God’s judgment on America for our wicked ways. He has given us the king we deserve.

Daily Caller: Obamacare’s spectacular flop of a roll-out distracts from its crude calculus that encouragesthe allocation of healthcare resources along racial lines and a doctor-patient system splintered into ethnicities.

obamacare-seeks-to-divide-doctors-patients-by-race-skin-color

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor under Obamacare — if you both belong to the same race.

While the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s language on diversity sounds innocuous, a review of the frankly separatist thinking of the law’s ardent supporters indicates Obamacare is aiming for a health care system that puts political correctness above the struggle against illness and death.

A 2009 report by the Center for American Progress (CAP) examining the House and Senate bill eventually signed by President Barack Obama advocates pairing patients and doctors of the same race, a goal toward which the law channels taxpayer dollars.

“Research suggests that health care providers’ diagnostic and treatment decisions, as well as their feelings about patients, are influenced by patients’ race or ethnicity,” the CAP report reads. “Several studies have shown that racial concordance is substantially and positively related to patient satisfaction.”

The key phrase is “race concordance” — a word which means “a state in which things agree and do not conflict with one another.”

“There is… evidence that race concordance — defined as shared racial or ethnic identities between clinicians and patients — is related to patient reports of satisfaction, participatory decision making, timeliness of treatment, and trust in the health system,” the report reads. In other words, fixing the broken U.S. healthcare system means assigning Hispanic doctors to Hispanic patients, African American doctors to African American patients, Creole doctors to Creole patients, and so on.

To accomplish this, the CAP report explains, Obamacare pours taxpayer dollars into affirmative-action candidates whose judgment will lead them to make life-or-death decisions. Ultimately, these taxpayer-funded grants would provide scholarships and loan forgiveness for minorities so they could provide healthcare services exclusively to their own race or ethnicity. source – Daily Caller.
